DOMAIN NAME SERVICES

  Domain Names

We provide a fully managed domain name service. We will check the availability of your requested domain name, acquire the domain name for you, administer the domain name and configure the DNS hosting server records. We can also assist you in choosing a domain name that will be both search engine friendly and customer friendly.

Please note that just because a website does not exist for the domain name you wish to buy, it does not mean that the domain name has not already been taken by someone else.

  Domain DNS Services

After purchasing a domain name, in order to use it for a web-site or email, you require a DNS Server that hosts your DNS Records. We provide a fully managed dedicated DNS service for those clients who feel that DNS management is not for them. Our DNS servers have a guaranteed uptime of 100%, are fully independent of your other services such as web or email, and we will host your DNS Records on 5 globally distributed redundant servers. The volume of DNS traffic that your domain name will use depends primarily on the popularity of your website, so as such we offer three levels of DNS hosting to avoid large DNS over-quota charges.

DNS Service Price
DNS initial configuration per domain (£) 20.00
Bronze DNS Hosting per domain p.a. - Small sized websites (£) 10.00
Silver DNS Hosting per domain p.a. - Medium sized websites (£) 50.00
Gold DNS Hosting per domain p.a. - Large sized websites (£) 100.00

All DNS Record changes post initial configuration are charged at £10 per change.


  Putting Your Domain Name to Use

Once your domain name and DNS have been purchased, you can put your domain name to use. You can use your domain name for many Internet based services, but the most common uses are for email and a website.

a) Email Provision

For small businesses we recommend using the free Google Apps Email Service that provides upto 100 email boxes free of charge for your domain name. With this Google service, you can use your email via the web or with an email client like Microsoft Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird, or even via your mobile phone. Note that this is not the same as Google Mail or GMail, although it uses the GMail platform as part of its implementation. When using the Google Apps Email Service, emails are sent and received in your own domain name, e.g. from somebody@company.com (not from somebody@gmail.com).

We charge a flat fee of £130 for the setup and configuration of the Google Apps Email Service. This charge covers the domain name ownership verification, configuration and validation of the DNS MX records, domain name configuration to access your web-based email via your domain name, setup and configuration of the Google Apps' administrator account, the setup and configuration of one user email box and full testing. There are no ongoing monthly fees with this service either to IT Centa or to Google.

Google Apps Calendar Service - For an additional one-off charge of 30, we can also setup and configure the Google Apps Calendar Service that can send email and text message reminders of user's calendar entries. This initial charge is inclusive of one user's calendar configuration. Additional user's calendars are configured at £10 per user.

b) Website Provision

Website Hosting - IT Centa offers a comprehensive business web hosting plan that is suitable for most small businesses. You can either buy a website template and configure this yourself, or install or develop your own bespoke website solution.
